Few days ago Gameloft finally update Order and Chaos Online. Maybe this update is the most anticipated update ever, but it may also be the most disputable update ever. It appears to be like part II of the Mendels Rising update. When players start the game after this update, first that they see is the Mendels Rising promo art, along with the update title in the corner. Also, the app icon is still a Mendel, although now hero looks somewhat angry.
We must be honest, update bring so much changes, so many tweaks to the way things used to be. Changes that everyone expected are two new regions and ten new levels. However, developers has changed how everything works. For example, business skills have gotten a big overhaul. This is maybe a good, since the last system was not so good, but next days will show is the new system really better or not.
First of changes that players will face when they log in is the revamped Talent tree, along with reset points. Players will quickly notice that it look different. Players have only 29 points to spend and some of them also have new names. It sems that developers complete overhaul the Talent system in this update. Each Talent tree begins with a Mastery that affects the other skills in the tree. Don’t take that Talent Mastery and your Talents in that tree will not be as powerful … but, you can only choose one of the two Talent Mastery options, making hybrid builds more difficult?! And there are fewer talents per tree overall.
Player opinions is divided about this change. Some players say that individual Talents are now more powerful, making up for the points reduction, while other complains the loss of things like Fire Barrage.
We should wait for some more days or weeks, because now every opinion is ONLY opinion. Most of complains are just the subjective players experience of the first few days after changes.
We should wait to see if Gameloft will “retain” this update, that extended the Order and Chaos Online not by increasing the power curve, but stretching it out over a longer leveling sequence. If they take this update as the basis for a next updates, then it’s a level cap raise but not a power level raise. Still, there are new levels of content for players, some new epic items to find, and some more things that players should discover.
Stay update with new Order and Chaos Online Update…
